We help people grow, conserve, and learn about orchids. We teach the public and orchid enthusiasts how to care for and protect these beautiful plants in their homes and greenhouses. Many orchids are endangered in their native habitats, which are now under extreme pressure. Growing orchids in homes and greenhouses, besides being enjoyable, is vital for preserving the magnificent plants that can no longer survive in the wild. The Society does public presentations at various events and organizations around the Greater Cincinnati area.
